“As an artist I strive to capture the beauty of nature, wildlife, the diversity of landscapes and the changing colours throughout the year.
I had a chance to see some of reproductions of paintings of Robert Bateman. I am very much inspired also by his paintings of wildlife, and like his style very much. I like to paint images of wildlife and landscapes.
A forest, in its variety of forms, shapes and colours is perhaps one the principal themes I like to capture in my paintings and drawings. There is a certain inner harmony, which I fill when I do my paintings or drawings.
While sketching outdoors, I use pencil, watercolor or acrylic paints, whereas in the studio, I paint mostly with acrylic.
